5 Things We’re Excited to Eat and Drink This June

Shawarma poutine, grilled green tomatoes and discounted Negronis are on our list this month.

The lilac trees are finally blooming, the grass is green from the rain and sunny afternoons on the patio are just generally putting Calgarians in a good mood these days. Plus, warmer days mean we’re out and about and ready to eat. Here are five things we’re excited to eat this June.

For those smoky or rainy days, there’s this comforting Conchigile Bake pasta dish at Waalfower, which opened in Bridgeland’s historic De Waal building in March. It features big pasta shells baked with cheese curds, spinach and béchamel and topped with toasted crumbs.

Shawarma Barlow is obviously best known for its shawarma, but the chicken shawarma poutine is also worth stopping in to try. The poutine is only $10 and is easily sharable. It has all the veggies and chicken you would put in a shawarma wrap, but with fries, gravy and cheese curds piled on top too. Top it off with garlic sauce, sweet sauce, hot sauce or a combination. You may need a nap afterwards.

June 7 is National Donut Day and we are here for it. In honour of this glorious holiday, Hoopla Donuts is donating one dollar from every doughnut sold to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada. They’ll also donate an extra dollar for every picture, video or boomerang posted with #HooplaLovesLLSC. The doughnut menu at Hoopla changes with the day and season, but a constant is the passion fruit, which also happens to be vegan.

When it happens to be 27 degrees Celcius on a Monday, you want to be outside. Cannibale’s cozy patio is a great spot for a weekday tipple, especially if you happen to live in Bridgeland. On Mondays, all Italian cocktails are $10 so you can slowly sip on a delicious Negroni until the sun goes down. The Monday special also includes tall cans of Peroni for $7.50, wine for one dollar per ounce and amaro tasting flights with free snacks.
